Fitzbillies’ Chelsea Buns

Share Published on October 26, 2017

Fitzbillies has been a Cambridge high street institution for nearly one hundred years, first opened in 1921 by two ex-servicemen returning home from the First World War. Fitzbillies café is known for serving good coffee. Their most famous product, however, is their sticky Chelsea bun, baked daily in their on-site bakery.

Fitzbillies have two cafés, on Trumpington Street and Bridge Street, but guests of the University Arms need not get out of bed to enjoy these iconic Cambridge treats: Fitzbillies’ Chelsea buns are on the hotel’s daily breakfast menu.
